I'm currently serving as CTO of Meltwater, a pioneer of media intelligence and now Outside Insight, gives businesses the information advantage they need to stay ahead. More than 30,000 companies use our product to stay on top of billions of online conversations and extract relevant insights to strategically manage their brands.. We do interesting work in the areas of Fully automated unsupervised web scraping, Natural Language Understanding, Rule mining and Link prediction on large probabilistic knowledge graphs, Scaling Elastic Search to handle petabytes of data. We are actively hiring and If any of these sound interesting to you, drop me a note at adityaj at cs dot stanford dot edu

Previously I co-founded Predict Effect, an audience acquisition and Monetization platform. I was a founding member of the Cloud Solutions team at Netflix where I worked on Simian Army (Chaos Monkey), Cassandra/Priam, that are currently open sourced and used by several companies. Prior to that at Yahoo, I worked on Data Highway, a realtime data platform that collects and analyzes 300 Billion web events (10TB) a day with a total hardware installation footprint of 500,000 nodes. I received my Masters in Computer Science at Stanford University under the supervision of Hector Garcia Molina.

I also served as Visiting Research Scientist at Cornell (Robot Learning Lab) primarily responsible for driving the architecture of RoboBrain. Problems I investigate are motivated by large scale multi modal data, the Web, on-line media and Knowledge bases.
